  1. Made this for Spring PAC 2013 and what a great choice! I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and otherwise followed the instructions. I didn't spray the dish either and we did/do have enough of the dressing for vegies today. Served with recipe#314721#314721, recipe#301516#301516 with a green salad and PaulaG's recipe#94469#94469. Definately will make this fish dish again. Thank you for posting.
  2. We really enjoyed this different breaded fish. You can really taste the onion from the french-fired onions. The coating does have enough fat in it that you don't need to spray your baking dish with cooking spray. The ranch dressing/dip mixture is really good with the fish and any left overs would work great as a veggie dip. I made as posted and served it with some poppy seed noodles and steamed broccoli for a wonderful meal. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
  3. Very good fish recipe. I tried this last night and my DH and grandson both really liked it. Thanks for sharing this good, easy different way to make fish.
  4. Yum! DH said 'this is some good fish'. The onion/ranch combo gives this dish a chip-dip taste.. but certainly no complaints! Will certainly make this one again. Thanks for posting!


<p>I'm a stay at home mother of three. 7th, 8th &amp; 11th grade. I left my corporate career&nbsp;4 years ago and have LOVED being a full time homemaker. In 2004 I finished formal training in Massage Therapy and became licensed.&nbsp; I now have my own MT practice, which I work part-time.&nbsp; I founded The Lindsey Group which is comprised of other independent therapists in my area.&nbsp; We share office space which makes it possible for all of us to be self-employed without financial burdon of monthly office lease.&nbsp; My favorite things to do are cooking and gardening. Healthy diet habits are my passion and many of my recipes are in that category. But I collect and use a lot of long time favorites from my family and my church too. My family's favorites are Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple Salsa, Mexican Lasagna, and Chicken Pot Pie. When soccer keeps me from the kitchen, my family loves it when I mix up Rice and Beans Burritos, wrap them in foil and stowe them in a cooler (no ice). We enjoy them at the soccer games. Our family favorite comfort food is Saulisbury Steak, mashed potatoes and green beans (not quite in the healthy category). That's a Southern meal in anyone's book!
